    And the issues with Bloodstone reach further than just a hard to grasp plot. Both the driving and the shooting suffer from a distinct lack of polish.

    Blood Stone is definitely not one of 007's best missions.

    And it's all over in about five or six hours. Worse, for all its authenticity in terms of voicework, the cut scenes and animation are all too often hilariously awful.

    James Bond 007: Blood Stone is a very underrated game and perhaps the most thrilling Bond experience I have had; close to watching them in the theatre. I am a huge fan of the fact that this game is a third person shooter, I have been turned off of the recent Bond games because it reminds me of playing "Call of Duty" or some type of war scenario game. The campaign for an experienced gamer may seem short, but for me who is someone who has a family and career I enjoyed an entire week of Bond. The story-line is strong, reminded me of old films, yet could have been expanded on for longer game play. The fact that Commander Bond is a spy and not necessarily a military character the third person perspective paints a wonderful picture for the viewer, the cinematics transition so well with the "3PS" a fun adventure from start to finish. This is the closest I have seen a game to fulfilling my virtual Bond fix, I will not be trading this one in! Full Review »

    All gameplay mechanics aside if you want to run around as Daniel Craig and beat some pulp into enemies and experience some intense car sequences then pick this up. Perfect rental. Yes the graphics go from great to surprisingly gross and the cutscenes need more polish but if you are a 007 fan and especially a fan of the last two Bond outings then this is a lot of fun.

    This game would be great if it were an fps. but its a tps and it just doesnt fit that category. the story is great and it is good to have a James Bond game that is not based on a movie but this game just isn't fun enough. Full Review »
